And can I just say, isn't my nightstand gorgeous? Coupled with the wall color? Love. It. Thank you, Hubby!
by Eugene PetersonI have long wanted a copy of this Bible paraphrase written in contemporary language. It won't replace my NIV Study Bible, but it is an excellent tool for understanding. And its narrative, storytelling format is perfect for me, who has a hard time reading nonfiction, to read. The best Bible for you is the one you'll actually read.
by Francine RiversThis is the third book in Rivers' 5-book Lineage of Grace series, which tells the story of Ruth in historical context. I'm reading through the series with my mom's group this spring, and we are loving the way these Biblical women come to life through the author's words.
by Veronica RothYes, it's back again! And I am so glad I waited to read this after the first book. This is the second book in Roth's Divergent Series, which explores future Chicago, a city which has divided into 5 factions in an effort to maintain peace. But peace based on division is bound to be short lived. A couple of weeks ago, one of our pastors mentioned that one can learn about our culture's deepest fears by looking to pop culture--she mentioned the current wild popularity of dystopic literature by way of example. AKD and I are reading this book simultaneously. In other words, if I can't find my book, I know where to go looking! We've got Allegiant out from the library right now, too.
by Steven FurtickIn Crash the Chatterbox, Furtick shows how to use the "noise-canceling" truth of God's word to drown out voices of negativity in four key areas: insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement. I've made this book part of my Lenten observance, and I'm loving it so far. This is my current Blogging for Books selection.
by Jenifer JerniganThis is one of four Bible studies in the new inScribed collection published by Thomas Nelson, and released on Monday. These books are gorgeous, with nice heavy paper and place-keeping flaps. This particular one is a study of Ephesians, which just happens to have 6 chapters, so it's perfect for adding to my Lenten practice. In this book, Jernigan models her D.I.V.E. approach to studying the Bible, teaching the method along with exploring the message of Ephesians. This is my current BookLook Bloggers selection.
That's what I've got for ya. What are you reading?
